. >> the insurance companies kind of figured that obama wasn't going to get reelected. they were shocked and then they kind of figured that maybe the supreme court certainly wouldn't uphold this, and then they did. and they're kind of caught with their pants down in this situation. but honestly, we're all caught with our pants down. we're all going to suffer the consequences of this. we keep delaying things. why don't we just delay the whole bill permanently and come up with a real solution that really is affordable and that will take care of everybody. i'm sure we can do that. i've talked to a lot of people with a lot of extraordinarily good ideas. and if we didn't make it into a political football, we americans, we're capable of solving problems if we really want to. >>gretchen: the other delays we can argue have been political potentially because we have mid term elections coming up, and many of the democrats who are up for election, reelection are like, my goodness, this obamacare thing might kill me, might kill my chances. some of these delays you could argue were to benefit democra
